About me

Hi! My name is Sarah, I’m glad you are here! I have been a licensed social worker since 2013 with a strong background in medical social work including but not limited to mental health. I am currently a clinical licensed social worker here in the great state of Oregon. I have a lot of life experience that I hope brings a level of empathy not found in textbooks. I use a very conversational approach to therapy, listen deeply and try to weave in concepts, perspective, insight, questions that activate, and offer practical tools to help clients (you) reach their (your) goals. My service areas include helping those who may be struggling with addictions, coping with grief and loss, adjusting to life transitions, family/relationship issues, as well as depression, anxiety, and mood and personality disorders. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I have an unconditional positive regard for all. It is my goal to provide a safe environment for you to discuss your concerns and experiences. Taking the first step of signing up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!

I have felt listened to and encouraged by our sessions. It is something I needed and reminded about my personal coping skills.
